By | Published on Wednesday 28 June 2017


Spotify is taking one of its biggest in-house playlists, ‘RapCaviar’, on the road. Through a partnership with Live Nation, the streaming service will host six ‘RapCaviar Live’ hip hop shows around North America this year.

The first show will take place in Atlanta on 12 Aug, headlined by Gucci Mane, with support from Mike Will Made It plus others TBC.

“Proud to partner with Gucci Mane on this incarnation of the RapCaviar vibe”, says Spotify’s Head Of Hip Hop, Tuma Basa. “Gucci was an early believer in what we are doing and it’s gonna be beautiful to see it manifest live. Taking ‘RapCaviar’ on the road was just a dream for us a few years ago. This is an important milestone for Spotify, for ‘RapCaviar’, and for hip hop in the streaming age”.

Other shows will take place in Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, New York and Toronto, with dates and line-ups to be announced.
